If you don't know Eric from Wicker Park's Silver Room--the purveyor of cool--then you're missing out.
If you get a chance, check out his stylish jewelry/accessories boutique in the 'hood (1442 N. Milwaukee Ave., 773-278-7130), but he's also known for putting his stamp on urban hipster nightlife.
Tonight, he's launching a Friday night party, "Show & Tell," at 343 S. Dearborn St. With DJ Duane Powell, he's spinning a tantalizing blend of nu jazz, soul, rock and whatever. 10pm-2am. $5. Be there, or your ass is square.
